170209 Yoga and Centrifugal Dancing

I have been spinning as part of my dance practice since about 2003. It came to me by chance, and I find it to be different than other things in my life for the kind of presence it requires.

For my Capstone I am trying to document all of the sorts of creative endeavors I try during this time.

First I will share a bit of my yoga practice here.  This is an unlisted post on You Tube so this is currently the only link to access it.

It was filmed to the musician Greg Brown’s song Rain and Snow.

Then if you skip to minute 2.56 of this video you can see a fun little bit of my spin style dancing.  Before that I’m just sitting in warm up and toe tapping so it’s worth skipping that portion.  I should have clipped it, but still need to get the updated iMovie I need on this computer.  Sorry. The music in this film is Greg Brown’s Where Are You Going When You’re Gone?

I hope these links work, feel free to let me know if they don’t.

The dancing and yoga has been the most intense to try to show.  Filming set up and making space is one thing and then sorting through the film taken and trying to select some worth showing at this stage has been hard.  Then just my small computer storage space and remote location make uploading to You Tube extremely time consuming….. but here is a sample of some of my yoga and dance time.  This Thursday I did yoga and dance for over an hour and tried to film best I could.  I have been spinning as part of my dance practice since about 2003.  It came to me by chance, and I find it to be different than other things in my life for the kind of presence it requires.  I can see I am quite out of practice, but it’s important for me to be open and accepting of my current state.  I need to understand that I will probably only get better if I buckle down and practice, so there is no need to be ashamed that I have let it go to a large degree.
